Zidane, Zidane, Zidane ... ad nauseum

We have scarcely recovered from the Guardianista fascination with 'rebel against raunch', and now the leftist establishment have gained an unlikely hero -- a scary-looking, non-smiling head-butting thug. The catch is, of course, that he's Arabic, Muslim, angry, and an immigrant to Europe who is well known for 'fighting against racism'. This makes for a killer combination. The fact that he displays violent contempt for other sportsmen could possibly even be an incentive for the Guardianistas to love him even more.

I counted no less than five Zidane articles on Cif since yesterday, and that excludes the pieces originally submitted through the paper (which appear in the middle column). There is one or two about Germany, and a great big zero about the actually winners of the World Cup, Italy.

The crowning piece of today, however, must be Andrew Murray's love declaration of the left to Muslims in Britain. Of course nothing we don't know already, but it's nice to see him admit it. Traditionally, the left believed in freedom and such (or so they had us believe), but nowadays they admire strict, medieval-styled religious orthodoxy. Great stuff.

Islam and the Socialist Left

"As Osama bin Laden himself declared in a fatwa which he issued in March 2003: "The interests of Muslims and the interests of the socialists coincide in the war against the crusaders."
